Because I adore the nib in my King of Pen more than any other nib I've had and because I can't seem to shake the craving for another one (as if, had I a second one, I could write with one in each hand, a double pleasure), I have been looking at Sailor's urushi Kings of Pen. For weeks and weeks I thought about the green one (https://www.nibs.com...en-green-urushi ). Then, hearing that in certain lights the green showed shades I wouldn't necessarily like (a cold, grayish teal or a greenish yellow), I began thinking about the blue instead. Googling around, I see the blue sometimes like navy (as in https://www.nibs.com...lue-urushi-gold, which I am not keen on) and sometimes as cobalt (as in http://www.pensinasi...fp___sailor.htm, which I like a lot). But photos and screens are both unreliable. In fact I don't know what either one really looks like.
I wonder if anyone has a KOP in either of these colors and can tell me what the urushi looks like.
